I attended a workshop in Kurukshetra, the Techfest of Anna University in January. I write this blog to share some of the hacking tools i have known during that 3 hours of workshop. Hope everybody might have known the fundamentals and i dont think i need to start it from scratch. Hackers is of two types: Internal and External

Internal hackers pose the greatest threat to the IT systems of the world’s largest financial institutions, according to the 2005 Global Security Survey.

1. GetAdmin – This is a hacker utility which exploits flaws in MS Windows NT 4 OS and changes the administrative privilege of an account ie.any guest account can be changed to an administrator of the network.
Note: It doesn’t work in later version of windows
2. PipeUpAdmin – It is same as GetAdmin.But it works in MS Windows 2000. It has more enhanced features than GetAdmin.

Privelege Escalation is the process of exploiting a bug in an application to gain access to protected resources in the network. Cross Zone Scripting is a type of attack in which a website subverts the security model of web browsers so that it can run privilege escalationmalicious code on client computers. Vulnerability can be reduced by installing server packs and patches.

Password sniffing is an act of finding the password to gain access to the main system.
LC4 or L0phtCrack – This the most frequently used software for password sniffing. The good intention of this is that if the system admin has forgot the password then he can find the password within a minute. The bad intention is that it is used by hackers who can get all the passwords of a company within a minute. It usually uses the dictionary attack.

Session hijacking is the act of taking control of a user session after successfully obtaining or generating an authentication session ID. T sight Realtime – Once this software is connected to another system,the whole system is hijacked. A new window is opened in the hacker window and whatever the victim types over there Tsight display it in the hacker screen.

Port scanning software imply sends out a request to connect to the target computer on each port sequentially and makes a note of which ports responded or seem open to more in-depth probing.nmap is the mostly used software for port scanning.

Atlast i would conclude by listing some of the trojans and hacking tools with their use:

1. smbdie – This can kill the computer
2. netbus – trojan which can access the victim computer
3. elitewrap – this binds two exes which is used to combine a data file with a virus.


Some of the accurate definitions of the hacking tools are taken from Wikipedia

Notepad Tricks January 10, 2007

Posted by Vijay in Education.

I write this blog by keeping in mind about the notpad tricks i have known. These Tricks were tested only on XP and dont know whether it works on Vista..

1. This Trick helps you to make a virus with your notepad:

Copy this code in ur notepad and save it and scan with your antivirus..
“X5O!P%@AP[4\PZX54(P^)7CC)7}$EICAR-STANDARD-ANTIVIRUS-TEST-FILE!$H+H*X5O!P%@AP[4\PZX54(P^)7CC)7}” (Without Quotes)

2. This Trick might be known to most of the people as Bush Trick:
Open a note pad and type Bush hid the facts. Save that file, close it and again open…

3. This trick has been added only after the world trade centre crash:
Did you know that the flight number of the plane that had hit WTC on 9/11 was Q33N. Open your Notepad in ur computer and type the flight number i.e Q33N Increase the Font Size to 72, Change the Font to Wingdings. U will be amazed by the findings.

4. This Trick makes your notepad with date and time entry:
Sometimes we want to insert current data and time, whenever we open the file in the notepad. If you are a lazy person like me, who don’t like to press F5 whenever you open a notepad. Then here is a trick to avoid this. Just add a .LOG in the first line of your text file and close it.Whenever you open the file with that text in the first line in the notepad, it will insert the current date and time at the end of the file. You can start entering your text after that.

5. This Trick helps in Changing Header and Footer of the notepad:
Ever printed the little text you wrote in Notepad? More often than not, the printout starts with “Untitled” or the filename at top, and “Page 1? on bottom. Want to get rid of it, or change it? Click on File, Page Setup. Get rid of the characters in Header and Footer boxes, and write what you want as Header and Footer. Use the following codes.

&l Left-align the characters that follow
&c Center the characters that follow
&r Right-align the characters that follow
&d Print the current date
&t Print the current time
&f Print the name of the document
&p Print the page number

Print tree root

a. Open NOTEPAD and enter {print tree root}
b. After that hit enter and type C:\windows\system
c. After that hit enter and type {print C:\windows\system\winlog
d. Hit enter and type 4*43?$@[455]3hr4~
e. Then save the file as teekids in C:\windows\system.
